"Yes, wherever bikes are broken or threatened by international communism, the bike repairer is ready! Ready to crush the Communists, to wipe them off and push them off the face of the earth. "
– The flying circus of Monthy Python
There are times when you write something that you think is important and that you want to do well. It's one of those times. I hope you find this post useful.
A few weeks ago, a very good friend sent me an article. The article intrigued me and I started looking for the bottom of the article. What I found was beautiful. The article itself is this (LINK), from Time® magazine, you do not have to click, I'll summarize it below. I will note that Time ™ has a very good red border, but they have not added the hammer and the sickle yet. Again.
I found this article annoyingbut it really corresponded to the research I had done so far. There is a cultural shift on the left, and the left is moving farther and farther, more and more to the left. I wrote about it here (Civil War, neat graphics and Carrie Fisher's leg), which probably prompted my friend to send the link.
I read Tayari Jones' Time® magazine. I found it to be an example of the result of the most brutal form of programming and exploitation of children I saw recentlyAlthough I confess that I try to avoid Disney movies. In short, his parents were black nationalists (His description, not mine.) "Black nationalists" refer to a group that wants to either return to their home country or create a separate black nation in the United States.) this convinced a five-year-old child that Gulf Oil © was responsible for the deaths of black children in Africa, so much so that the child, Tayari, would not drive to the zoo in a car powered by Gulf Oil®.
The piece ends with simplicity. Everything on the left is happy and moral. Everything on the right is the evil death.
Should we celebrate our tolerance and our civility as we dress the wounds of the world and the climate with a poultice of national unity?
Jones wants to divide us further or destroy those who do not conform and do not conform to his (undefined) points of view. Also, the last time the word "poultice" was used aloud was by Granny on the Beverly Hillbillies. But his title says it all, "There is nothing virtuous about finding common ground."
This led me to ask myself more about the author – what was going on in his head that led to this article? What are its ultimate goals?
The Soweto uprising, a 1976 confrontation between black students and the police, featured prominently in the article. in hindsight that seems to be an unplanned 4th generation war (The caravan: the war by other means) offensive. I've hit Wikipedia to find out more. Then, here is the missing link.
"No Middle Road," an essay by Joe Slovo is considered influential by the National African Communist Congress (ANC) at that time. The original title of Jones' article, as stated in the URL, says:Average moral myth. "Obviously, they are connected. Once again, from Jones:
I find myself bothered by the difficulty of understanding the need to find a common ground. People are wondering how we could meet in the middle, as if it represented a safe, neutral and civilized space. This fetishization of the moral environment by the Americans is a wrong and dangerous cultural impulse.
D & # 39; agreement. Now you have my attention. We have a person who actively preaches in divisions and implicit violence whose title of the suppressed essay echoes an influential 1976 essay. My next question was simple: Who the hell was Joe Slovo?
Joe Slovo was a communist born in Soviet Lithuania, Yossel Mashel Slovo, who had moved to South Africa with his family at the age of eight. Slovo was a deeply loyal communist who admired Stalin. He was exiled from South Africa for 27 years and spent that time launching and orchestrating terrorist strikes in South Africa overseas. His operations included bombing civilians. Slovo had free time to monitor the killing and execution of people considered traitors to the cause, often by passing a tire around his neck, filling it with gasoline and burning it. The nickname of this practice was "necklacing". Slovo did not actually do these things himself, he simply planned them and was in charge of the organization that carried them out. See? His hands are clean.
Slovo was so leftist, the only thing on his right is this picture.
Slovo was to have an influence on Tayari Jones. Understanding the influences can be important. Tayari Jones did not mention what she wanted to do with those she opposes. Maybe the test she was influenced on would be?
I decided to search the Internet, where I could find out what was being broadcast on NBC television on a Sunday night in June 1983. I spent more time than I would like to admit to sift through Marxist websites, looking for the test. I went to second Google © results page. Comprehensive search, indeed. I even found where the Marxists who had already posted a copy were looking for a copy to post. It's as if the document had been deliberately cleaned from the web. Odd – once the information is found on the web, it normally flies freely and multiplies. Not that.
I finally found that the test was included in a book, Southern Africa: the new politics of the revolution (Penguin / Pelican, 1976). This is the only place where I can find it. A seller on Amazon had a copy for less than $ 8, so I bought it. It took weeks to arrive. It was old – the pages were turning yellow. It was also like the spirit of a socialist: he had never been open.
What did I expect? The usual Marxist language is designed to be confusing and cult.
Whenever someone talks like that? They want you to nod and claim to understand.
No. Slovo was very clear in his writings. Slovo writes largely on conditions and history specific to South Africa. And, rebuilding and solving South Africa's historical and actual problems and injustices goes far beyond this post. But Slovo very clearly defines a battle plan that is being used against the United States right now.
For example, on page 118, Slovo states: "To be born white means by definition to be born privileged. . . . " I had only heard about the concept of "White Privilege" in about 2014, then it was reported on a trial (White Privilege: Unpack the Invisible Backpack) from Peggy McIntosh, which you can read further in this excellent essay on Quillette: (LINK).
The important idea is that McIntosh is not the origin of this controversial concept – Slovo spoke about it in his 1976 essay. It may be even older, but this is the first reference I have found. And Slovo has specifically introduced it to open new divisions in South Africa.
". . . the struggle to destroy white supremacy is ultimately linked to the very destruction of capitalism itself. "
In another parallel with today, Slovo describes the history of the struggle for liberation as "The Resistance" while defending the case where his dreamed communist state can only be provoked by the violence, He calls "armed struggle" rather than "killing people I do not agree with, as well as children on my side, if we can get good pictures for the press."
Slovo was clearly waiting and wanted a war. At the time of his life, Slovo had completely misunderstood what had happened during the communist takeover in Vietnam and he thought that the Vietnamese had won a military victory. They did not have it. North Vietnam and Viet Cong have been beaten in almost all their engagements. The North Vietnamese won because they demoralized the United States and gave the impression to politicians that the war was impossible to win – it was clearly a victory of the war fourth generation.
In the end, the ANC realized, even dimly, that the death of black South Africans during the Soweto uprising was their victory. They won by appearing to be the victims. And they won by creating a coalition of victims who would never have the impression that they could never be compensated for their suffering – no compensation would ever be acceptable.
Page 205 contains the revealing sentence: "The struggle can no longer be centered on civil rights claims or reforms in the context of white domination. It is a struggle for popular power, in which mass ferment and the growing importance of the armed factor go hand in hand. Slovo worked to use the ethnic divisions of the country to create a situation in which the raw power ended up in the hands of the communists.
We are there: the ultimate goal is not rights, nor prosperity, nor freedom, nor freedom. The ultimate goal is naked power.
Back in the US, we find that this could never happen here:
Nothing you have is yours. Let me be clear: nothing you have is yours. In addition, let me see through: the repairs are not donations because we are not your charity, a tax deduction, or a good action of the day. You live on stolen resources, stolen land, exploited labor, appropriate culture, and the murder of our people. Nothing you have is yours.
Reparations for us are not only necessary because we are economically harmed, exploited and stolen – although violence against us is never recognized – but because so that we can create and move work for liberation Blacks, this requires resources and MONEY. We live in a white supremacist capitalist world, so it is not useless to create lies around the slogan "Money is not the answer". This is because money, exploitation and power are interconnected concepts of violence. You have spent hundreds of years selling, mutilating, raping and beating our bodies and our work, but you think money does not matter for our freedom and liberation? Cute. Write me a check for this nuance as it comes with 400 years of trauma.
We need housing, transportation, food, clothes, open spaces for meetings and work; we need laptops, cell phones, encrypted communication systems, solar power and FIELD. Stop playing. Did you really think that participating in the event in your Hyundai would be enough? Nah. You have to give us everything we need and more, because even if it means you have to do without it, it does not matter, because that's how we've lived for more than 400 years. Repairs will never be negotiable. So, if you do not want to talk about money, you are not here for #BlackLivesMatter as a movement or for us as individuals.

I thought this quote was a parody until I found it on the website on which it was originally published. She seems to be serious. It is Ashleigh Shackelford, who seems very friendly when she speaks to the people who support her, because this passage above was a cry of joy for her white supporters. I left him spelling, emphasis and capitalization intact. Mrs. Shackelford is the product of the same mentality as Marxist Joe Slovo and (I suppose) Marxist Tayari Jones.
As I wrote earlier (Seneca's Cliff and You) it is much easier to destroy something than to do something. Today, in our culture, Marxists are actively trying to undermine the fabric of our society by using various weapons, and in particular to create a majority coalition of disaffected people to destabilize society in order to create, in reality, a American version of apartheid. fight. This is one of the reasons why illegal immigration is actively supported – it brings in people who are totally independent of today's society. Apart from future left-wing votes, this group is used to create additional fragmentation in the country.
He will have to work very hard.
One thing we saw – when this tactic works, how difficult it is – looked at Protestants and Catholics in Ireland. Once in the comments on this blog, people talked about Irish issues and started arguing over who was responsible. in the comments. On this blog. In 2018.
I was certain that when the Soviet Union fell, the world was safe. In my opinion, the horrors of Cambodia should have made it clear to the peoples of the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe who were liberated from oppression that the subject was closed. Even if people could not see that communism was evil, at least they could see that it was not working, right?
No. Like Jason or Michael Myers, communism keeps coming back. It seems that, like Freddy Kruger, communism will continue as long as people like Slovo, Jones and Shackelford fight and kill (or even kill themselves) power. But only as long as there are people stupid enough to believe them.
Fortunately, there is no one like him in the United States.
